How to make a gluten-free soup


Winter is here, and there is nothing better than a homemade hot soup. But finding a gluten-free soup in the supermarkets can be very difficult. So, how to make a gluten-free soup at home? It’s very simple and can also be quick.

At the bottom of this page you will find one a quick recipe + some additional ideas. But you can really use very vegetable. Just make sure to follow a few easy rules:

    Choose at least 2 or more different vegetables. It’s better to choose seasonal vegetables, as they will have more taste.
    Chop every vegetable in small dices, so they will cook quickly and be more easy to eat.
    Some good pairs I love are: pumpkin + mushrooms, zucchini + peas, green beans + broccoli.
    Add a legume, like beans or lentils to make it a complete meal, including carbs and proteins. Likewise, chickpeas are also a good idea. You can use canned goods, or the type of lentils that cook in 20 minutes. Read the labels to know what to buy. Also fresh beans or peas are perfect to use, when in season.
  3. CARBS
    Finally, I always add pasta or rice. It makes it more fun and children will love it. Moreover, the soup will be way more filling this way.
